Rebuilding old prebuilt desktop to new case

Budget (including currency): £100

Country: UK

Games, programs or workloads that it will be used for: CSGO/Coding

Other details (existing parts lists, whether any peripherals are needed, what you're upgrading from, when you're going to buy, what resolution and refresh rate you want to play at, etc): 

I have a prebuilt Acer Aspire X3470, with a AMD a6-3620, 8 GB ddr3 ram dual channel, Radeon HD 8570 graphics. I also have an N200 case from microcenter in the USA from my newer pc that I replaced into a newer case. I am wondering, could I put the components from the Acer into the N200 case with a new PSU then upgrade the processor/gpu to something better like a 750TI. I also need to find out what cpu's would be compatible because I know it is an acer motherboard.


I am looking for a solid 60 fps on 720p in csgo on medium/low settings, as well as use it for pycharm, photoshop as a backup desktop for when I stay with my parents during breaks from university.(I dont want to lug my gaming desktop back). I already have a screen, and a keyboard/mouse. None of my current desktop parts wo

the motherboard looks like it'll fit just fine, but you'll need to figure out the front panel pin layout. there's nothing you can upgrade your CPU with that will give a meaningful performance bump so just save up for a future upgrade to another platform.

CPU: AMD Ryzen 7 1700@3.8Ghz Heatsink: Gelid Phantom Black GPU: Sapphire RX 5700 XT RAM: Qidian DDR4 2x8GB 3000Mhz mobo: Biostar X370GT7 case: Fractal Design Define C PSU: Superflower Leadex Gold 650W
